    Default Dinobots!

    I just read somewhere that Michael is not a fan of the Dinobots?? Not sure how much credability there is with the article, so I thought I would start a poll to gauge what everyones thoughts are. After reading a few of the threads there seems to be growing support. I would LOVE to see them in TF4, however there would need to be a worthy enemy I suppose (or they could be it as per previous storylines...) Any thoughts?

    Although indeed Michael said that he doesn't like Dinobots still I think there's a big chance to see them in TF4. The most important thing for the 4th movie will be to show something different from the previous 3 and Dinobots are just that. And why not, we've already seen a bird and Jaguar Transformers in the movies. Actually I can bet that in TF4 we'll see either Dinobots or Unicron. If they go with the Dinobots I think they should go only for Grimlock, not all of them. It would be easier to explain and less screen time consuming.
    And there are already pretty good fan concepts of Grimlock on the web.

    The first one looks cool but the organic look is very far from the Bayverse.

    one of the better looking ones for this, but i think the only way id think they'd ever be in is via a "fall of cybertron" style, as in a part of an experiment

    I don't understand why Bay left them out, they are one of my favorite characters. Hell, he gave us a giant scorpion.

    to me An. Altmode is meant to bring an Advantage be it camuflage or speed. Whats the point of transforming from a humanoid to a dinossaur? What can grimlock do as a t-rex that he cant do as a humanoide? The recent animal transformers looked great but i still prefer the bigger human-to-machine characters.

    Good to see that the Dinobots are still progressing in other formats!

    Bay would have to approach the Dinobots designs in a different way if they would make it to the sequel.
    The Dinobots so far are an idea I'd like to have kept out from the films.

    If you were going to take away their dinomode, you might as well make them entirely different characters altogether.

    Drop the other dinobots, but keep Grimlock. And his T-Rex mode. A robo-dinosaur is exactly the OTT streak of crazy-awesome another TF movie needs.

    My views of the Dinobots in the movies are changing...

    I'm all for just Grimlock. Hate to say this, but the other Dinobots don't have the recongnition he has. (Probably because of the fact that he's a tyrannosaurus rex.)

    Grimlock would fill in the "big strong guy" role that Ironhide once occupied, only angrier, and more beastly. It would certainly add to the group dynamic of the Autobots. You see where I'm going at here? Grimlock would be the "Hulk" to the Autobots' "Avengers." (Without being too similar, of course.) His job during a huge battle? Smash every Decepticon (or new threat) that stands in his way. Plain and simple.

    He'd also be a major headache for the Autobots. For one thing, he's impulsive and defiant. Secondly, they need to find ways to keep him out of the public eye, because he has no real disguise. That could lead the filmmakers to come of with some creative ways of moving him around. It's always fun when our heroes are stuck with some sort of dilema. But in the end, he's the Decepticons' worst nightmare.

    As for his origin story...well...I got nothing.

    People i talk to say "Yes, do it!" To Dinobots. They say they were cool.
